About This Activity

Join us at Noon on Sunday, July 26th at Soiable Cider Werks for a fun run 5k, taking place before the full afternoon of the NE Brewer's Block Party!


It doesn't get more simple than this: walk / jog / run … drink beer....(and eat snacks, listen to live music, enjoy food trucks! etc!)... and raise money for local non-profits! You've heard of breweries doing "tap-take-overs" at local bars...we are doing a runners version! Northeast Runners Takeover!! A 5k Fun-Run, which runs by 5 breweries, and finishes at the NE Brewer's Block Party that has over 11 local breweries pouring fresh brewed beer!

You recieve 1 free pint, a collectors pint glass or seasonal merch item, VIP access to the Block Party (special entrance & access for free 1 hr before everyone else!), access to live music, food trucks, and SO MUCH MORE FUN!

You can walk, jog, run… no one cares. We’ve mapped out an awesome course that weaves through the NE neighborhood and ends at the NE Brewer's Block Party hosted at Sociable Cider Werks! Don't forget to take in the NE scenery, history, and multiple other brewery taprooms you will cruise by along thr route! Cross the finish line and celebrate! All participants receive a FREE craft brew from any of the 11 breweries at the Block Party and get to take home a collectors pint glass or seasonal swag item. Bring the whole gang! Everyone is welcome to stick around and enjoy the day’s entertainment: live music, food trucks, and all afternoon fun with other partners and sponsors!

Registration is limited, so sign up today!

Let's consider this an "un-race" as it goes against many principles of those fancy 5k races you may be familiar with. This is not timed and you will not get a medal when you finish. What you will get is an excuse to enjoy the great Minnesota outdoors, FREE beer and swag, and the wonderful feeling that you are supporting our local community. Remember: a portion of all proceeds go to benefit MN non-profits. Check our website to see who we support and why:!

Some more important things to note:

  • This will be an OPEN course, meaning roads will not be closed. You are responsible for obeying all traffic laws and regulations

  • You must bring a valid ID or drivers license. You do not need to be 21 to enjoy the course, but you must be 21 to enjoy the beer. Please drink responsibly. (Registered, underage participants will receive a FREE non-alcoholic beverage)

  • We run rain or shine! Please dress appropriately for the weather

  • There will not be a bag check; please plan accordingly
